activities to the issue dujour. The key is to do go through the proper planning process, and then choose the area that needs to be focused on. Today you may

Well, I am sure most of you screamed ‘of Course, yes. A million times over’. The current rising levels of pollution are to be blamed for this, where everything gets hindered, be it sight, breathe or work. In fact, the biggest problem of the environment right now is the rising damage caused by air pollution. Air pollution is highly scalable, not easily visible to the eye and hence, difficult to control.
Compared to land or water pollution, where it is just one lake or one strip of land that needs to be cleaned, air pollution is difficult to get rid of. One single gush of wind and all plans of air purification can go down the drain.
In cases like these, environmentalists and weather specialists talk about how it has become crucial to directly stop emitting particulate matter and harmful gases which not only impact air but also cause global warming and ozone
It might not seem like an ideal platform for marketing, but the statistics might surprise you: Sumpto, a company focused on marketing to college-age individuals, found that 73% of college students would open a Snapchat from a familiar brand, and 45% would open one from an unfamiliar brand. The app had 30 million users as of December, had surpassed the number of users on Instagram in the US alone, and has growing usage abroad. The picture messages do disappear as soon as a user views them, but there are still some interesting, and novel, marketing possibilities.
The most interesting thing about Snapchat is the immediacy of the experience. While there are workarounds to save the images, there’s still a time limit on how long it will be on the app. As a marketer, you can add a sense of urgency.

They have nothing above them to keep them from being dishonest.” He went on to explain that when people don’t have some sort of faith, they can do whatever they want.

Starting with a foundation that there is a God and He is bigger than us helps us get perspective about our place in the universe. We are part of something God is doing here on earth, and because of that, we want to help people and honor God with all of our decisions.
Belief in self
After we have a strong foundation in God, we must have a strong belief in ourselves. This one may be harder for some of us depending on what kind of family we come from. See, if we have been told we are worthless or that we will never amount to anything, those
